First off, glamcabbit, Manga or books are not DUBBED, they are TRANSLATED!
Ok. Now that that is straight, this manga was really good. Ther artwork is great. The story is good, but it could be better. It just isn't as good as it used to be. Even Naoko herself said that she was sorry she was so kept up with the anime that she didn't really try to make the StarS series interesting (I think)
Anyone who can't have the Sailor Moon StarS anime should get this manga. It's not SO different from the anime, accept the Villians are SOOO much smarter.
This manga starts out with Sailor Moon fighting Kitty and the Sailor Starlights finally finding Princess Kakyu. Later on in the manga, Sailor Moon is left without Mars, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn, Neptune, or Uranus to help her. She then finds out the shocking truth. She is the target of Sailor Galaxia, the scout of destruction. Set upon rescuing her fellow Sailor Scout's Sailor Crystals, Eternal Sailor Moon goes to find Sailor Galaxia with Sailor Chibi Chibi (NOT SAILOR CHIBI CHIBI MOON! THAT'S ONLY IN THE ANIME!), Princess Kakyuu, and the Starlights. But Galaxia won't let Sailor Moon win that easily! Will Sailor Moon be able to get through all the obstacles in her path?
Unfortunately, this description might not be that good, considering I lost my StarS 2 manga in the Seattle Airport ! :'-(
Oh well. Hope I helped you!
PS Would actually be 4 1/2 stars, but I couldn't figure out how to do that! Anyone know?

A'ight.. Rai is here to recap her reading time! Stars Vol2 was, I think, better than Vol1 because there weren't as many confusing *FLASH!* and *WOOSH!*'es, don't get me wrong.. there were plenty to go around.. ^^; just not as many in Vol1. Vol1 seemed to be forever leading up to Usagi and the main enemy(not gonna be a spoiler ^^)'s battle, and they finally start their way there in Vol2. So I'm glad to see some progress other than *FLASH!*, *WHOOSH!*, *KABOOM!* and *...WHAT JUST HAPPENED?* ^^;; I was terribly aggravated at the end of STars Vol2 because the ending is the only ending that has made me mad with desire to want to see what happens next! ARRGGHH! Now I have to wait for Vol3 to come out! WAI! I would suggest waiting to buy this until Vol3 is out.. ^^;; don't purposely drive yourself mad w/anticipation. ^^;;;; Okay, once again, I say, GET IT! The Stars series is GREAT! Certain peoples *ahem!* deaths.. turn out different than in the anime.. which I liked better.. ^^; but not that big a downside. ^^; Just less-dramatic, 'das all. ^^; My overall comment on Stars is get it, and make sure you get the SuperS Vol.'s!!!!! They ROCKED sooooo much! WAII!!!! ~Rai

The Sailormoon manga can't get any better than this... If you can't read Japanese, that is... Aside from the few mishaps (i.e. the name translations from "Usagi" to "Bunny", "Minako" to "Mina" (etc), and "Sailor Soldiers" to "Sailor Scouts") the Sailormoon Stars saga is Tokyo Pop's (or whatever they are now) best translation of the series yet. They aren't as censored as the anime has been; considering they kept Michiru and Haruka's relationship intact, the Starlights are still both man and woman in appearance, and the story is kept ENTIRELY as-is. Although I still prefer the overall appearance of the Japanese manga (i.e. the 'right-to-left' reading and clearer print, instead of Tokyo Pop's somewhat blackish images); since I can't read japanese, and also since the original manga is REALLY hard to find now-a-days, I am more than satisfied with the Tokyo Pop english translation. If you like Sailormoon and really want to read the original story, you can't go wrong with this version... As long as you can handle the few mishaps *be happy they're translating it at all, because this is actually made for a Japanese audience you know* ^_^
In this Volume: Bunny (Usagi) must deal with Tin Nyanko, another Senshi sent by Galaxia. Now that all of her friends are gone, all she has left to stand by her are the Three Lights, Chibi Chibi (who is revealed to be a Sailor Senshi herself), and a recently discovered Princess. Luna and Artemis are turned into ordinary house cats! In the future Chibi-usa is having her own problems! Bunny must deal with conflicting emotions of love and pain; and unfortunately through all this, the final battle in on the horizon. How will Bunny ever handle it all?!
